A change in circumstances led me to becoming an artist today. I studied print and textiles at Ravensbourne University in 1998. My love for print was nurtured from a young age; lino cutting helped to develop this in secondary school. I now work from my home studio and BIP in Brighton, where I use their Colombian printing press for my larger-scale pieces. I love relief printing and a lot of my work uses the block print as a base, which I then work into with, inks, enamels, precious-leaf metals, and pencil. I use lino, wood, and mono-printing as well as my large-scale textile pieces to develop my body of work. My large-scale works tell a tale individually and together as a group.
